Timberwolves turned a corner while you were sleeping

There may never have been a better team in NBA history than this year’s Golden State Warriors.

There may never been a more directionless NBA franchise than the Minnesota Timberwolves, whose fans have been waiting for a promising team to turn the corner.

Last night, the team turned the corner, beating the Warriors in overtime, and putting a crimp in Golden State’s hope to win more games than any other team in NBA history (they’ll have to go 4-0 the rest of the way).

This season the Timberwolves have now beaten the best team in the league, and lost to the worst team (Philadelphia) in the league.

The win likely guarantees that coach Sam Mitchell, on a one-year trial as interim coach following the death of Flip Saunders in October, will return next season.
